    Bill Maher Blames "The Democrats" For Trayvon Martin Shooting

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/vid..._shooting.html


    Oh, man, this thing is just going all over the place, huh?


    All this time I thought I was arguing for the justice of one family and--perhaps--one grieving, forlorn, killer (and by "killer" I DO NOT mean "murderer"--that is for the courts to decide, not me), and, as it turns out, this whole thing is about Republicans, Democrats, race and gun control...

    Who knew?

    The number of trash cans Maher must have been stuffed in as a kid to end up like this. It's truly sad.

    On HLN’s “Dr. Drew” on Tuesday night, Maher explained that the Democratic Party bowing to the National Rifle Association on the issue of gun control made it possible for the so-called “Stand Your Ground” legislation to become law.

    yeah, he's really a libertarian, he's no liberal.

    You know it, cause he showed his love for Palin.

    Both of those are at fault.

    I almost forgot to mention that Trayvon's death is Bush's fault.

    He's like many in the entertainment industry. Liberal/progressive on most ideas, civil libertarian on issues relating to speech.

    Bill's pulling out the same bit as he always does. He wants to be the guy who saves the Democratic Party from themselves, because they give in to the political Right. That's his political outlook.

    It was a series of poor decisions by two men that led to this unfortunate shooting.

    I blame Democrats insofar as they continue to foster an environment where we all have to tread carefully around black people. We're talking about a case where Zimmerman's account is substantiated by eye witnesses, medical treatment, and general observations by the police but is still dragging on because they could all be racist. It sure looks like this case is going to surpass even the OJ Simpson trial and investigation into the Duke lacrosse players in terms of ridiculousness. I keep hoping a prominent Democrat will come forward and say "hey, enough with the nonsense!" but none seems to want to bite the hand that feeds it.

    And that's a legitimate point IMO. The Dems make pussy's look tough.
